Víctor Monge “Serranito” (Madrid, 1942) is regarded as one of the most skilled Spanish guitar players of the latest decades. His musical education is self-taught and his artistic career started when he was 8. When he was 12, he formed the trio Los Serranos. His virtuosity and musicality have made him be currently considered one of the best representatives of the flamenco guitar playing and he has over 20 albums “The guitar player of the guitar players”, as defined by the critic José Manuel Gamboa, was awarded the 2019 “Medalla de Oro de las Bellas Artes” (Gold Medal to the Fine Arts) and will say his goodbye to the scene in 2021 with a tour that will celebrate his over sixty years of professional career.
